I'm not sure about the modifications to the LD vars, though it sounds 

I regularly test new versions of ports before deploying them. I do this by 
having a build environment setup in /build. I use chroot to enter the build 
environment and compile/test the software. I also do this for buildworld when 
updating the OS. This allows me to install newer (or older) versions of 
software in the build environment without affecting the running system.
